2 weeks ago, I told you I was going to give you a look into how to set goals to get results by how I map out my goals. I’m excited that today is the day you get a glimpse. (I tend to have terrible handwriting when I’m in a hurry mapping out goals so I cheated and created this on PicMonkey. So this isn’t *exactly* how I do this process but it’s as close as possible!)
When mapping out goals, the first thing I do is list out my priorities and brain dump goals into each group of priorities. My priorities for this particular goal mapping session included marriage, family, spiritual, this blog, my new business, my Rodan + Fields business, and home management. To get my entire process, you can check out my post here.
After I listed out each priority and brain dumped some goals (this list isn’t complete but I wanted it to fit on one page), I went back through and I gave each goal a date to figure out how to prioritize each goal. Not all goals are created equal! By doing this I can work on those that need done first and then add in the others that occur later. For example, my marriage goal of having an overnight without the kids can happen anytime in 2017. It’s not a priority for January. I will look at that again later on this year. We will hopefully be going skiing next December so I will start planning for that in October and made a note in my planner.
I then narrowed in on my home management goal of streamlining my routines and systems and brain dumped how I think I can do that in 2017. This is a very rough brain dump because my youngest child is switching from morning preschool to afternoon preschool on Wednesday which is honestly going to really mess up my regular routine! So by trying to get a rough draft routine figured out I can adjust as we adjust to this new change.
I have penciled these down into my planner so I can adjust as we adjust. I hope this has been a helpful visual into how I process mapping out goals and can help you map out yours as well. Be sure to leave questions or comments below if you have any!
Happy Wednesday! Thanks for joining in the party!
